    How old are your kids? I sometimes end up taking mine with me to the meetings. I still don't know if I've got a sitter for that day...

    Finally got to an internet connection, still in the Chicago area till tomorrow, anyway, picked up the wookie super soaker while I was here, that thing is sweet, only issue is the small water tank, working on that, though.

    Is anyone planning on hitting the midnight maddness sales that night? My husband and I will be at the Toys R Us on Lindbergh in South County Friday night/Saturday morning to blow his paycheck! lol!

    If anyone from the group is going, we'd love to meet you there! We'd really like to meet some people from the area before we head to CIII.

    I am thinking of hitting the one in Kirkwood. I am not sure, is there one further down? We are all going shopping on Saturday. Would you both be interested in joining us?

    I'd love to meet you all that morning, but we've already arranged baby sitters for our 2 year old that night and I can't see getting the whole weekend away, especially with CIII in just a couple of weeks.

    As far as farther down, the Toys R Us that we're going to is the one by South County mall at Lindbergh and 55. I don't think that there's a TRU any further south then that. I know that they're having a ton of stuff from midnight to 2 a.m. I don't know if they're going to have the book, though. I want to get it, but my dh isn't interested in reading it until after he sees the movie.

    You'd better have a good excuse Ken. :)

    If anyone need directions let me know and I'll PM you. Also, the Final Four are in town this weekend and there may be alot of traffic in the Poplar Street Bridge area. If you want an alternate route let me know.

    I need directions and an alternate route would be great, but then who else is going to be up at 8?

    Ken, it's just not gonna be a meeting without your randomness to spice things up! :(

    I got two new lightsabers, so I don't have to buy as much come April 2nd. :D IT's a new blue Anakin one and a Darth Vader one.

    Hey all, I just got this AWESOME 5x7 postcard in the mail that's all shiny and stuff and has Anakin fighting Obi-Wan on the front with fire and such. It's from Target, reminder that Star Wars stuff comes out April 2nd, as we all know. I also got a coupon from Target that is $1 off every Star Wars action figure purchaced.

    I might be looking for a Vader figure, but since I don't buy action figures, well... ;)

    Yeah, I got that in the mail yesterday (or rather, my mom did, but I'm the only Star Wars freak in the household, so she let me have it).

    At first I thought it might be a giant sticker, but couldn't figure out how to pull it off. My sister suggested it might be meant as a mousepad.

    No matter what, it is COOL! I've got it sitting up on my dresser right now, shining away.

    I don't have any money to spare for the figures... which is too bad, 'cause I'd love to get more Padme figures.

    I'm on the other side of the state, in Independence, so I wouldn't be able to join the group shopping day anyway.

    Agh, I'm upset.

    The WalMart I shop at, which is in Hannibal, isn't on the list of for the Star Wars weekend thing. Yet, by the doors are signs that say "celebrate star wars here April 2nd and 3rd!" Grrr. What the heck.

    Joe, I hear ya, I am in Quincy and the WalMart here was on one list but not on another. And the people in the stores had no clue when I asked them about it. (although the shelves are set up with a sign saying Ep 3 will be available at 12:01)

    I got all the 3.75" figures that are out, all the unleashed, and most of the odds and ends I wanted. It was such a great time. We acted like fools, got 2 hours sleep, and "shot" eachother from the cars. Success!!!

    This was honestly the best 24 hours I've spent in a long time.
